Blower motor resistor

A few questions:

1) does 93-98 ZJ's use the same resistor, and

2) does anyone have a pic of where the resistor is? I see many wires but nothing that resembles a removable item.

Thanks in advanced

-Phil

Granted this is for the WJ, but check the links within this thread for pic's. It's just below the glove box on the passengers side, closest to the firewall. It screws up into the vent from underneath.

Manual or auto controlled climate?

2 different packs i beleive.

Its on the left side of the blower motor under the passenger dash.. Unplug the harness and 2 screws holding it in..

If its shot it will work on high but no lower settings..

It's a piece of cake to replace if it is anything like my 2002 GC.

It took most time to get the electrical connection apart. Be sure to unbolt the resistor first before pulling the electrical connection apart. I didn't and it took two weeks for the torn skin on my knuckle to heal.

Automatic.

Ok i locatedit but didnt take it out yet... Now if its shot does that mean high should work? It does not work on any setting. And the auto climate control u can set it to like 50 different settings it looks like. Do you think possibly it could be my unit it self? Is their a way to check? Im sick of using this getto switch i have and it only blowes out at hair ripping speed and nothing else

Ill take it out and see if theirs any signs of discoloration or the likes

If the resistor is bad it should only work on high...but on RARE cases it won't work at all. Try directly connecting the ground that goes into the resistor to the blower motor. If that doesn't work then it's either your switch or a ground to the switch.
I had a similar problem and found that one of the two grounds to the switch was broken. So I just grounded it by sticking a wire from the switch to the nearest metal surface and now I have heat.
